Oh no! In a mysterious mechanical failure, both Nord Stream pipelines through the Baltic Sea have suddenly ruptured, cutting off a major supply of natural gas from Russia to Europe and possibly causing an environmental disaster as well.

Who is responsible for this? Oh, come on, it’s not hard to take a guess.

As long as the Nord Stream pipeline existed, it was a potential diplomatic and economic weapon in the Ukraine conflict. Though Russia was still supplying gas to Europe, there was the possibility that they might cut off gas to put pressure on Europe, or that the desire to keep the pipeline operational would nudge Europe toward seeking a negotiated end to the war.

Now, with the pipeline gone, so is that leverage. Of course, it’s also massively damaging to Europe’s economy and energy security. But whoever destroyed it didn’t seem to care much about that.

Comically, the U.S. has put out statements about how it is ready to help its allies in the wake of this unfortunate incident:

The United States is “ready” to help European allies after leaks erupted from the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines carrying Russian gas to western Europe, a senior White House official said Tuesday.

“I’m not going to speculate on the cause, and I know our European partners are investigating. We stand ready to provide support to their efforts,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“This just drives home the importance of our efforts to work together to get alternative gas supplies to Europe and to support efforts to reduce gas consumption and accelerate true energy independence by moving to a clean energy economy.”
